Metaclass and __slots__ Python

But it does help complete the picture for the usage of slots and some of the reasoning behind them. The third paragraph is more wishful thinking. Now if both bases had nonempty slots, we couldn't do the below. See section on multiple inheritance below for an example. Viewed k times. By default any attribute access to the proxy object will give you the result from the proxied object. Suppose if my class Test has thousands of such objects? To verify this, using the Anaconda distribution of Python 2. This eliminates overhead for each object, which can become significant if you have many objects. Quoting Jacob Hallen :. Unfortunately there is a side effect to slots. To put it another way, should you encourage a newbie to learn about them and use them from the start? Some other introspection features of python may also be adversely affected.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Great answer, thanks! It doesn't allow undeclared attribute assignment by default. Could you please rephrase "Factor out all but one or all parents' abstraction which their concrete class respectively and your new concrete class collectively will inherit from - giving the abstraction s empty slots just like abstract base classes in the standard library. One sidenote: in the current version of python 3. This is bad, because the control freaks should be abusing the metaclasses and the static typing weenies should be abusing decorators, since in Python, there should be only one obvious way of doing something. The namedtuple builtin make immutable instances that are very lightweight essentially, the size of tuples but to get the benefits, you need to do it yourself if you subclass them:. The biggest caveat is for multiple inheritance - multiple "parent classes with nonempty slots" cannot be combined. Avoid them if you want to subclass variable length builtins like long, tuple, or str, and you want to add attributes to them. This saves the overhead of one dict for every object that uses slots. Its ObjectWrapper allows you to proxy another object, but intercept all interactions with the proxied object. This is actually incorrect. This message comes from the oldest protocol, which is the default. Critique of the until Oct 2, accepted answer The first paragraph is half short explanation, half predictive. The methods can be reduced to class methods. Python 3. The relation between "their concrete class" and "your new concrete class" is not stated -- simple inherit. While this is sometimes a useful optimization, it would be completely unnecessary if the Python interpreter was dynamic enough so that it would only require the dict when there actually were additions to the object. It's difficult to parse. The current top answers cite outdated information and are quite hand-wavy and miss the mark in some important ways. These are cases when you no longer want to use purely Python objects. Here's the only part that actually answers the question. My own contribution to the documentation clearly states the reasons behind this :. Learn more. Bar 3 1 1 97 str Bar 4 0 0 99 str Thank you! This shouldn't usually come up, but it could:. This is consistent with the history of Python, from Unifying types and classes in Python 2. It is related more to building extensions than it does to using the slots syntax on an object. Rob Bednark Jeff Bauer Jeff Bauer Quoting absent third parties is unhelpful. This is mentioned in the SWIG documentation. For example:. Now I can't add new attributes to my objects except attribute x and python doesn't create a dict attribute anymore. Ask Question. Indeed, it could be reduced to just functions operating on the underlying array of data. Together it is mostly off-the-mark content that the answerer didn't even author and contributes to ammunition for critics of the site. Small caveat, you should only declare a particular slot one time in an inheritance tree. The below is not a real reason to avoid slots for actual reasons, see the rest of my answer above. Quick Caveats Small caveat, you should only declare a particular slot one time in an inheritance tree. Slots are very useful for library calls to eliminate the "named method dispatch" when making function calls. It is true that many Python users aren't writing for reusability, but when you are, having the option to deny unnecessary space usage is valuable. Now this may not be directly related to the OPs question. The first paragraph is half short explanation, half predictive. You don't have to have slots - so if you add them, and remove them later, it shouldn't cause any problems. Avoid them if you insist on providing default values via class attributes for instance variables. Instead of having a dynamic dict that allows adding attributes to objects at anytime, there is a static structure which does not allow additions after creation. Asked 11 years, 5 months ago. Active 5 months ago. Jeb Jeb Active Oldest Votes. An attribute of a class instance has 3 properties: the instance, the name of the attribute, and the value of the attribute. I am very interested in learning who is doing this and why. The class-like wrapper has no attributes β€” it just provides methods that act on the underlying data. You can select the latest protocol with the -1 argument. In Python 2. When pickling a slotted object, you may find it complains with a misleading TypeError :. Instead, you want a Python object-like wrapper around an array, struct, or numpy array. In regular attribute access , the instance acts as a dictionary and the name of the attribute acts as the key in that dictionary looking up value. They change the behavior of the objects that have slots in a way that can be abused by control freaks and static typing weenies. Critiques of other answers The current top answers cite outdated information and are quite hand-wavy and miss the mark in some important ways. This saves the overhead of one dict for every object that uses slots The second half is wishful thinking, and off the mark: While this is sometimes a useful optimization, it would be completely unnecessary if the Python interpreter was dynamic enough so that it would only require the dict when there actually were additions to the object. Future objects to synchronise and return results. Just for completeness of my notes, note that there is a one-time cost per slot in the class's namespace of 64 bytes in Python 2, and 72 bytes in Python 3, because slots use data descriptors like properties, called "members". For high performance libraries that want to reduce function overhead for commonly called functions using slots is much faster. So it should be mentioned here that you also get better performance when instantiating large amounts of objects - interesting e. To accommodate this restriction, follow best practices: Factor out all but one or all parents' abstraction which their concrete class respectively and your new concrete class collectively will inherit from - giving the abstraction s empty slots just like abstract base classes in the standard library. To demonstrate, first, let's create a class with code we'd like to use under multiple inheritance. In fact, if we wanted, we could have given AbstractBase nonempty slots a and b, and left them out of the below declaration - leaving them in would be wrong :. Creating an additional attribute dict for each object will cause lot of overhead memory, computing power etc. There are a lot of details if you wish to keep reading. It is not very commonly used and no Python 3 support , but we have used it to implement a thread-safe blocking wrapper around an async implementation based on tornado that bounces all access to the proxied object through the ioloop, using thread-safe concurrent. Instead, all attribute access is done directly via pointers. This way you can reduce the memory footprint of those classes 5-fold , at the expense of having to write custom pickle code, if and when that becomes necessary. In flyweight pattern , the name of the attribute acts as the dictionary and the value acts as the key in that dictionary looking up the instance. This is because the Base's slot descriptor has a slot separate from the Wrong's. Python doesn't object when you get this wrong it probably should , problems might not otherwise manifest, but your objects will take up more space than they otherwise should. Fantastically detailed answer. The original question was about general use cases not only about memory. If you look at example above, you can see that obj1 and obj2 have their own x and y attributes and python has also created a dict attribute for each object obj1 and obj2. Here is a comparison of creating object trees with a million entries, using slots and without slots. As a reference also the performance when using plain dicts for the trees Py2. But we don't care about that, that's trivial single inheritance, we need another class we might also inherit from, maybe with a noisy attribute:. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. For 64 bit Python, I illustrate the memory consumption in bytes in Python 2.
